CIRI – Construction Industry Register Ireland
CIRI is an online register, supported by Government, of competent builders, contractors and specialist sub-contractors who carry out construction works. Its objective is to be recognised as the primary online resource used in the public and private procurement of construction services. Members must achieve certain standards and be reassessed annually.
Accel Lifts is currently (2022) the only lift company in Ireland to hold CIRI accreditation. This is important for Main Contractors and Design Teams alike, as CIRI membership is required for BCaR Ancillary Cert sign-off.
